Logo Design & Stationery – Linsole –

• Branding • Corporate Literature



In Manufacturing your branding should reflect the unique aspects of the product. With Linsole, it’s all about the natural choice. We structured the Logo with this aspect in mind.

Linsole is an established Manufacturer in China and they needed to promote their brand effectively in western markets. The owner recognised the need to contact companies with western knowledge and therefore approached Northstar with a narrow brief. They wanted modern branding that would represent their USP of natural rubber (Think rubber and rubber trees).
As with all good design we are always looking for something unique & innovative yet have some depth and meaning. Our solution was create the outline of a rubber tree left and use that to bring some cursive and modern txt to life. The typographic element encompasses the logo and provides definition and clarity.

Uniqlo

On 26, Feb 2017 | In Scratchcard printing, Unique numbered scratch card | By admin

Using custom scratch cards for a UK promotion & collecting customer data.

custom scratch cards UK

Client: Uniqlo

Product: Unique numbered, custom scratch cards.

Uniqlo is a Japanese casual wear designer and retailer. The UK marketing team wanted to understand more about their perfect customer and decided to use custom scratch cards in its UK outlets to help them achieve this.
Uniqlo approached Northstar for the scratch card printing as we have a considerable amount of experience of manufacturing custom scratch cards UK wide and can provide printing, personalisation, sorting & mixing facilities.

To customers the scratch cards would appear as a fun win / lose game with a number of instant prizes. However, the real key was that the card was also a ‘customer data collection device’. Every card (even losing ones) offered money off an online purchase. Every card contained a unique code which could be activated online. To redeem the code the customer had to input some personal details along with their name and address. The custom scratch cards helped gather thousands of UK customer details which the company was able to use to build a picture of its ‘Perfect Customer’.
 
Specification: With over 700,000 cards and 20 variations required this was a complex job. Each card required a unique number applied under the scratch panel and cards also needed to be evenly mixed with a balance of winning and losing cards in a random order before being bundled up and sent to the 10 UK retail outlets.
 
To learn more about custom scratch cards UK; Call Northstar Design on 01282 865333.

Bristan

On 20, Feb 2017 | In Bespoke Scratch card, Scratchcard printing | By admin

Order scratch cards for an innovative in store promotion

order scratch cards, in store promotion

Client: Bristan

Product: A Bespoke instant win scratch card game.

For an interactive in store promotion Bristan were happy to order scratchcards as they knew they would be an instant success with customers.
 
Bristan are a UK manufacturer of taps and showers. They sell mainly through a national network of distributors such as; plumbers’ merchants, bathroom showrooms and DIY stores. They are always looking at ways to encourage distributors to promote Bristan over other products. Therefore any promotion has to engage the attention of both the distributor and the customer.

After careful consideration they decided an ideal in store promotion would be Printed Scratch cards. These would offer the chance for customers to win a high value prize of a Racetrack Experience. They also wanted the distributors to ‘buy’ into the promotion and actively promote it to their customers. Therefore, the promotion had to have both attractive prizes and stand out from other more mundane forms of promotion.

Scratch Card Printing Solution: We suggested they order scratchcards with a non-standard cut out shape. By being visually different from other standard forms of marketing they would certainly stand out from the crowd. The cards were printed and then die cut in the shape of a race helmet. The result is a promotional card that is both fun and visually interesting.
 
Specification:
 These are an example of Bespoke scratch cards. There is a specific mix of winning and losing cards which are printed up together, die cut to shape and then separated into batches for the client to mix to the required win/lose ratio.
 For additional impact we also incorporated overprinted text in black on top of the scratch surface with an added marketing message.
 
To order Bespoke scratchcards like these or for other in store promotion ideas; Call Northstar Design, Scratchcards printing on: 01282 865333.
